Clarksville, TN – On April 12th, 2012 around 10:00am Steve West of Springfield Tennessee was driving a Recreational Vehicle south on International Boulevard when it burst into flames. He safely exited the vehicle and contacted emergency services.
Saint Bethlehem Volunteer Fire Department responded and began to attack the fire which was at that time fully engaged; the column of smoke could be seen from several miles away. Montgomery County EMS unit Medic 22 also dispatched to provide medical assistance if it was needed. Montgomery County Sheriff Deputies Sgt. Jimmy Brown and Lt. John Smith arrived and together secured both of the roads leading to the scene.
When they realized that the fire was larger than they were prepared to handle by themselves, they requested Mutual Aid from Clarksville Fire Rescue (CFR).
